Liberty Village is one of the city’s fastest growing communities.
While once a part of the Garrison Common — a military fortification for the Town of York - Liberty Village today is a bustling neighbourhood filled with the perfect mixture of residential, commercial and retail properties. Many young professionals who work in downtown Toronto are increasingly calling Liberty Village home..
One of the most characteristic aspects of Liberty Village is its unique architecture. Many of the area’s original buildings are still standing, which have been transformed from industrial buildings into residential condos and lofts. The characteristic tall chimney stacks are considered landmarks in the neighbourhood. There are also a variety of modern new condo tower house that dominate the eastern part of Liberty Village
Aside from the close proximity to work, the attraction to Liberty Village is the urban lifestyle that it boasts. Residents have a variety of recreational spots to choose from to fill their day, including taking a walk or jog along the nearby waterfront trail, letting the dog run around at Liberty Village Park, taking in a sporting event or concert at the Air Canada Centre and Rogers Centre, and going out for dinner and drinks at Toronto’s well-renowned Entertainment District.
For those who enjoy an active lifestyle, Goodlife, Danceology, Reebok Crossfit, and TKFitness Personal Training are all conveniently located in Liberty Village.
Liberty Village has gained a reputation for its unique furniture and design stores, in addition to its urban restaurants, chic coffee shops, and eclectic art galleries. Residents are also within close proximity to the Metro supermarket, Bespoke Butchers, and The Village Cheesemonger for groceries, as well as a local pet store, and bank.
For families with children, there are plenty of schools in the area to choose from, including
Parkdale Collegiate Institue
While residents can essentially walk to just about everything, there are plenty of other transportation options to choose from instead. The streetcar lines on Queen St and King St offer quick access to the downtown core, and the GO station is within walking distance at Exhibition Station. For motorists, the Gardiner Expressway is a few seconds away, as is Lakeshore Blvd to take residents outside of the downtown area.
